Step 8: How to make baked macaroni and cheese

Picture of how to make baked macaroni and cheese
Baked macaroni and cheese is the best as far as I'm concerned. The crispy top and edges, the extra melty cheese, the sound it makes when it comes out of the oven.


And it's super easy to do.
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 F
  2. Fill a 9x9 baking dish with macaroni and cheese
  3. Sprinkle a couple of handfuls of breadcrumbs over the top
  4. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the top is browned and crispy

I strongly suggest a quick spritz of cooking spray. It makes clean up a breeze.

I've never had it stick, but I don't use metal pans for it. I bet you'd need cooking spray then!

There's enough butter and fact from the cheese to keep it sticking to glass or stoneware. :D
